Siri is that one very important guy you need on your team and in your locker room to keep things light and fun. Love seeing these interactions.

Just got home. That was the best spontaneous thing I've ever done.

That was fun. Flew in from Nashville to go to the game with my old man a few months before I become a Dad for the first time. 1st World Series game for me was way less stressful than I thought it would be. I guess it helps to jump out early! LFG Stros!

Was the stadium reasonably full? Seemed like quite a few empty seats in all the tv shots.

To be honest, it was awesome, but it wasn't loud at all. At least up in the 400s. Louder than a regular season game but it wasn't necessarily rocking.

Yeah, it weirdly felt like a random Wednesday game, but simultaneously i was hyped as could be. Wasn't super loud for us in 311.

I was in the Gallagher club tonight standing at my bar top spot facing the field on the farthest pat of left field that the club extends and Jim Crane walked up with a couple people and stood there with em and watched the roof open. When he was done some folks asked for pics and he obliged. Then this lovable loud mouth standing next to us blurted out "please Mr. Crane you have to re sign Correa"

I expected him to ignore it or just walk away, but the dude stayed there and had an actual conversation with us about it. Here's the gist (I'm using quotes but I've had like 12 beers between then and now so yeah):

"I literally just talked to him in the locker room and told him after the series let's talk real numbers. I don't know if he's gonna get what he wants, but we are in the game"

So take that for what it's worth.

Also, I shook Ohtanis hand last night and he is a very tall person.

Now let's win the ****ing World Series.

These lists are so freaking wild to me. With the exception of Nelson Cruz, it's all Yankees, Red Sox, Cardinals, Braves, and Astros.

This truly is the golden era of Astros baseball, and right up there with the golden era for the Yankees, Red Sox, Cardinals, and Braves.

Can you imagine this team with springer? Weird, it's like he's been gone a decade.

Loved how he played. Sucks he's gone.

excellent data.

another indicator of the greatness of Altuve and Correa in the playoffs...

one of their contemporaries...Mookie Betts...who has also played in a lot of playoff games:

51 games covering 234 plate appearances...only 4 HR and 17 RBI

Back home after the 3.5 hour drive after the game. What a great game to go to! Finally got to see a World Series win (past games were '05 g3, '17 g4, and '19 g2).

No comments other than a fun night at the park, and the roles were basically reversed from game 1 on offense and the Braves defense is terrible for a group of professional ballplayers.

I've never been so confident in a series before......not arrogant because anything can happen.....but extremely confident.


We're the superior team in every way.


Washington was different because of their SP. We are better than Atlanta at basically every aspect
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

This. We found it odd the lack of people getting into it on 2 strikes & 2 outs etc up in the 300s. We were on the front row on the rail and got called at several times to sit down and 'down in front' … I wasn't up the whole time or anything but certainly was for big moments. Just blows my mind what some of those folks paid to be there and weren't into it. The lady next to me sat the entire game and snapped at me when I set my peanut bag on the cup holder because it blocked her sitting ass view.

I didn't get belligerent but one lady said 'when you're old and have trouble standing you'll understand' to which I offered to trade seats and I'd stand up there - she scoffed and rolled her eyes. Pissed me off.

Yep. I think the only times everyone in my section stood up was when Altuve hit a home run and when they got up to leave.

I would give anything for a 30 for 30 on baseball celebrations. Behind the scenes footage of guys brainstorming new ways to celebrate, showing when and where they practice them, how long they work at them before actually breaking them out in a game, etc. It would be mesmerizing.

I wonder how much the crowd being "down" has to do with it being game 2.

Game 1 I could understand because before you sat down with your beer it was 2-0.

If this series comes back to Houston with the Astros looking to clinch, that place will be absolute fire.
